"New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards continues her penchant for "fantastic storytelling" (RT Book Reviews) with this next heart-pumping romantic suspense novel, the tale of a brilliant ornithologist trapped on the remote Attu Island in Alaska, fighting for her life--and that of a handsome stranger--before they're swallowed up in darkness forever. BOOM. That's the sound that changes everything for Dr. Gina Sullivan, a renowned ornithologist on a group research grant trip on the remote island of Attu, Alaska. When an everyday outing turns sinister at the onset of one of Attu's infamous storms, Gina expects thunder and lightning--but what she doesn't see coming is the small jet plane that drops out of the sky and into the water mere feet from her boat. Even more unprecedented: there's a sole survivor from the crash, and he needs Gina's help. But it turns out that rescuing the stranger and getting them both out of the oncoming storm is just the beginning. Because the more Gina learns about James "Cal" Callahan, he of brooding eyes and muscled frame, the more she fears--for herself, and for him. Cal has made a career of trading on government secrets and emerging unscathed--until a routine pickup goes horribly wrong and lands him in ice-cold water. Literally. He knows the plane crash was no accident and that there could very well be an enemy force currently combing the Alaskan island ensuring there were no survivors. Now if only the arrestingly beautiful bird-watcher with the clear-blue gaze would stop watching him, well, like a hawk. Cal convinces Gina to return to base camp and help him covertly get off the island. But when Gina makes it safely back to camp and finds her entire team murdered, all bets are off, and as darkness envelops the island, she must decide: trust a man she barely knows, or go it alone and risk running straight into the arms of a killer?"-- Provided by publisher.

Reading this book I wanted to say, Well, it's enough, we understood, understood, how beautiful and sexually attractive the protagonist is. In the course of the whole narrative is described the increasing sexual tension between the main characters. And with the same descriptions of the magnificent muscular body of the protagonist. This is really funny. It seems that the author has an obsession for this kind of men.
If it were not for an excellent description of the storm and the climatic conditions of the place where the action takes place, then this book it’s not worth reading. Well, also there is some knowledge of surviving skills.

I'm a fan of Karen Robards but I was disappointed with this book. It had a potentially good story line but all the detail was spent on describing the weather instead of the plot. It also beat the reader over the head with how physically attracted Gina was to Cal. Between that and the weather, I felt like I was reading the same thing over and over throughout the story.

This was an OK read. If you want something light and easy to read, this would be it. The story is very predictable. There was a lot of time spent on describing the weather conditions and I found myself skimming over some of it. Attu in Alaska was apparently controlled by the Japanese in World War II until the Americans took it. So there was a little history thrown in.
